Fritz Hasselbach Fritz's Riesling Qualitatswein Rheinhessen 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Fritz's Riesling is a light, dynamic, very food flexible and modern 100% Riesling wine in a hip packaging and a balanced style. Fritz's Riesling grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the "Roter Hang" meaning the "red hill". The “Roter Hang” is located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein 20 kilometers south of the city of Mainz. The characteristic name of this area is ascribable to its red slate soil. The red color comes from a high portion of minerals in the soil. In addition the vinyards are very close to the river Rhein, they are facing south-east and they have steep slopes. The combination of those four factors: the red slate soil, the closeness to the river, the exponation to the sun and the steepness of the vinyards are the perfect combination to produce a special wine like Fritz's Riesling.

Mild nose of petrol and slate, apricot, citrus. Taste of sour citrus and apricot, a bit slick in the mouth, a mild wine that has enough acid to cut through lighter asian dishes.

This was a perfect pre-dinner glass before serving weiner schnitzel. Just dry enough to set itself apart from the Schink Haus Spatelase.
